Laura Susmann met Friends of Pisgah (FOP) trail chief John Herrick at the Kilburn Trailhead at 10:00.  They drove to the Horseshoe Trailhead in Chesterfield and they joined Gary Montgomery, Krister Raasoch, Krister's dogs Art and Harry and John Hudachek. It was a cool February morning with lots of bright sun.

Everyone hiked down to the Lily Pond Trail where we split into two groups.  Gary and Krister hiked down Old Chesterfield Road to start work at the south end of Lily Pond Trail.  John Herrick, Laura and John Hudachek started work on the north end of Lily Pond Trail.  We met at Lily Pond for lunch at noon.

All trees and branches across the Lily Pond Trail were cleared.  On the way back to the parking lot we met numerous hikers and people on skis, snow shoes and snow mobiles enjoying the beautiful winter afternoon in the park.  We arrived back at the Horseshoe parking lot at 1:30.
